Women's Rights National Historical Park is proud to announce that its second annual Winter Film Festival will be held from November, 2012, through April, 2013. The films will feature different National Park Service sites and a variety of historical topics, including Ken Burns' documentary The National Parks.

All film showings will occur at 12:00 Noon on Fridays and Saturdays at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center, located at 136 Fall Street in Seneca Falls. All film showings will be free of charge.

Women's Rights National Historical Park commemorates and preserves the sites associated with the First Women's Rights Convention, which was held in 1848 in Seneca Falls. "We are proud to be part of the National Park system, and we invite everyone to join us in sharing our shared history and culture through film," said Superintendent Tammy Duchesne. "The Winter Film Festival is a fun way to learn about our national parks," added Superintendent Duchesne.

The Winter Film Festival films are intended for a general audience. Because film lengths vary, visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing.
